    Hi,

    Is anyone still working on this? I took a break from it for a while then went back to it the other day.

    Unfortunately I'm having trouble accessing the Forum at the moment so if you have sent me a private message (I know someone has) I'm afraid I can't respond until Rob gets back to me.

    Writerian,

    Pretty much same as you. Worked hard on it up to the point of solving some of the initial puzzles, but stuck at the border code. Then it seems everyone got stuck here too. I was able to access the Camelot forum the other day, but not much new was in there from any of the "regulars" pushing this any further.

    Interested in taking another stab at this , just not sure how to get by the border code impasse. Any thoughts?

    Not me and I wasn't much help on anything but the obvious puzzles, but just the other day I checked the rather dead forum. I had seen a shorthand book at the library and thought of possible writing on the wall at p71.

    Nope, no bright ideas at the moment - just thought I'd take a fresh look and see if I can spot something I missed which might move me in the right direction.

    I'm new in this treasure hunt. I'm still working on it.
    I got the four locations and the counting and zodiac pages messages.
    I'm stuck with the border message (of course) and with the churches' board codes. I'm trying to decode them using all of the cyphers I can think.
    I don't want give up with this one
    Regards,
    Oromis

    OK -- This is a new thread for me. Looked over the "teaser" pages on the webpage, and it looks doable. Question I have, is the book only available as an E-book, or is there a hard copy out there?

    The Border Code. Why all have 6 dots on one side? What is up with the offset ones? The side the 6 set is on? The difference in the set-up on different pages? If alphanumeric, how could it translate? Has anyone established how many different patterns there are to get a set? - This is my 5 minute look at the preview page. I am sure you all have done all this solved and more.

    Cheers~

    AH - but they don't all have 6 (not shown in the prview). In the purchased book, some pages have unique sections where all 6 are not there

    Ah yes, the border code ... quite an interesting bit of work there. 29 characters for each page with the exception of the un-numbered front page which has 30.

    A careful examination of the border shows that the side with the 6 set alternates from side to side for each page, therefore IMHO, is there simply to "fill the void".

    There is some type of information hidden there, but unlike most cyphers, where do you start on the border, and do you run clockwise or anti-clockwise?

    As for the other side of the border, there are 6 one-dot symbols, 15 two-dot symbols, and 20 three-dot symbols. Assuming the standard American English alphabet, this means that a given letter might have more than one symbol assigned to it. It's also possible that numerical characters are involved as well.

    I highly doubt that the letter/symbol conversion is of a sequential nature (A - B - C - etc)

    Oh, one final thing - on page three, I know you heard the owl ... did you see him? How about the squirrel, and the other bird?

    Do you mean you see these on page three? I'm assuming elsewhere, but I wouldn't be surprised that those trees could hide something.
